Three months after purchase, went to
use car and found it had no power. Had
Volvo Roadside tow it to dealer.
Now after 14 additional months, same
problem. Dealer service replaced
battery; found a bad cell.
Also, told me brake pads soon need
replacing, mileage now at 11,500 miles,
$135;is typical to replace at 15,000!
Called Volvo Consumer hotline. Indeed,
the materials used in the brake pads
wear quickly. No warranty coverage.
I rate this most poorly with regard for
the reputation the Volvo name seems to
Get brake pad performance/durability in
line with other auto makers. 15,000
mile replacement, indeed!
